Plotting all the magnet and solenoid wire configurations

To let you see what effect all the different variations of wiring and magnetic poles can have we have drawn all of them out for you below:

Moving the north pole of a magnet towards a clockwise solenoid

Moving the north pole of a magnet away from a clockwise solenoid

Moving the north pole of a magnet towards an anticlockwise solenoid

Moving the north pole of a magnet away from an anticlockwise solenoid

Now with the magnet the other way around we get:

Moving the south pole of a magnet towards a clockwise solenoid

Moving the south pole of a magnet away from a clockwise solenoid

Moving the south pole of a magnet towards an anticlockwise solenoid

Moving the south pole of a magnet away from an anticlockwise solenoid
